More Progress OpenEdge RDBMS Pros →

"We like that the product is both vertically and horizontally scalable, allowing us to do around 86 percent compression of documentation from 50 to seven terabytes.""The initial setup is straightforward. It usually takes around eight months but it depends on a customer's requirements. We can spend a month or two customizing.""The in-memory computing and the efficient response time are very good features.""The performance is very, very good. It's one of the best aspects of the solution.""The feature that I like the most is that we can transport the data to our web data application. SAP HANA's performance is really perfect. We're working on big data, and SAP HANA is really working on high performance. We are happy working with it.""Its in-memory capabilities are good, which is why many companies still use it.""We have found the solution to be customizable and it is beneficial it comes as a bundled package. Additionally, it is user-friendly.""What I like most are the dashboards and pervasive analytics."

More SAP HANA Pros →

"The only big hurdle for us is that most customers aren't familiar with it, so it's scary. If you're in commercial environments, everybody knows SQL, everybody knows Oracle, or whatever."

More Progress OpenEdge RDBMS Cons →

"The solution is very expensive for us.""SAP HANA is not strong like Oracle when it comes to finance. They are only strong with the logistic business project.""They can improve their technology for the CRM subsystem. There are other products that are better and more effective for the CRM subsystem. Its price could be better. It is expensive.""Uses a large amount of RAM and is costly.""There could be better management for faster updates, last year there were some changes in India to the e-invoicing feature.""Unlike other databases, it lacks management features that legacy databases like Oracle or SQL servers have. They need to make the solution easier to manage and offer tools that make management more effective. A lot of things you have on traditional databases you have to develop into HANA.""The performance and integration with other products are areas in need of improvement.""Technical support should be more customer-friendly."
